Steampunk Butterfly Gift Wallet Tutorial
Two coin envelope flaps were glued together to create a wallet and covered with Graphic 45 DIY paper.
I trimmed down the Mixed Media Fragment squares to fit the height of my envelope, then used it as a stencil for my embossing paste. I then heat embossed the chippie with Aged Black Embossing Enamel. Once the paste on the envelope had dried, I glued the chipboard fragment down with Glossy Accents. I had to use a few hinge clips to hold it in place until it had dried. I threaded buttons and hot glued them in place. The faux metal number plate was tapped with paint, then glued in place.
I cut one of the envelope sides off to create a slash pocket, then filled it with pretty postcards. This is a great place to write a personal greeting, mount photos on the reverse side of the post cards or tuck in a gift card.
Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed this Steampunk Butterfly Gift Wallet Tutorial. You can find more ideas and inspiration on the GSL BLOG.
